The mission of The Toa Nafasi Project is to address the needs of primary schoolchildren in Tanzania by assessing their abilities, cultivating their strengths, and resolving their weaknesses. By working in collaboration with teachers, parents, and the community at large, Toa Nafasi enriches the classroom experience and devises innovative and inspiring teaching methodologies that encourage participation and critical thinking. The goal of The Toa Nafasi Project is to elicit creativity and distinction in academic performance, extracurricular activities, and to provide each child with a chance to excel.
To date, Toa Nafasi has created and implemented an assessment tool based on the Brigance module for a pilot program to identify students with learning difficulties in a public primary school in rural Kilimanjaro. Relationships are being cultivated with local partners in order to obtain more services for students with various other disabilities.
Services and items needed are:
Sarah Rosenbloom, The Toa Nafasi Project Founder & Director, with one of her students.
